“The Lookout” is a durable canvas camera strap based off the classic design of our suspenders. The two D-rings are detachable for easy access to your camera and we reinforced the material behind the neck with a thick neoprene for added comfort. Handmade in Vancouver, Washington.
The “Nectar Protector” is an upcycling project collaboration with our friends at Panda Poles. By repurposing leftover material from the production of bamboo ski poles, we’ve created a functional accessory out of material that previously would have been discarded and unused. Each piece is uniquely handmade in Idaho and comes with a removable paracord necklace and plug.
At Treefort Lifestyles, we are very into creativity and art. One of the most inspiring forms of art to us is music. We spend lots of time in the office with the music LOUD! It drives us to be creative, have a happy state of mind, and keeps us from the idea of selling out. We are fighting the system that is in place for a business, and trying to have a break out in a non traditional way and music keeps us grounded and on point with our goals.
Because there is only two of us, we each have our own taste of music, but our biggest overlap is reggae/dancehall music. Most of our products have been created listening to reggae. The Travelers Trunk (Neck Wallet), and The Generals (Suspenders), which are the 2 original items from Treefort Lifestyles, were designed with the reggae turned up. It is inspiring because these guys are all self made, from nothing (for the most part). These artists are very self motivated which is how they got to the position they are in, and we feel that same drive. We also feel the drive to keep our morals high and not sell out. We are doing this to create something bigger picture, to give ourself jobs as well as other friends and locals, not to fill our pockets.
Check some tunes we listen to that keep us motivated!
Both Phil and Henrik have both dropped their trailer for their own personal movies that they have been working on the past season! Keep a look out because these guys will most likely be in a town near you this fall, and you don’t wana miss meeting these dudes and watching their movie. While in his skis, Phil is rocking The General suspenders, and off the hill both Phil and Henrik rock our Travelers Trunk neck wallet. Soon to be Inspired Travelers Trunks.
At Treefort Lifestyles we put our effort into creating products that we need and want, but don’t have readily available to us. We want to create products that people of a similar mindset to us will use, whether you ski, board, paint, surf, walk, run, photograph, bike, swim, soak, shop, smoke, drink, travel, or chill.
The Bunch crew from Sweden has been in the Mt. Hood area living in the trees since West Coast Sessions 8 and have been shredding non stop. This is worth a watch for sure. We have been stoked to have them around the Treefort Lifestyles office and having some of them beat up on our Generals (suspenders) and test custom features in our Travelers Trunk (neck wallet).
